LONDON CITY Lionesses – the breakaway from Millwall Lionesses – director of football Pedro Martinez Losa is to become the new coach of the  Bordeaux women’s side, the French club have confirmed today. 

Martinez Losa is joining the Division 1 Feminine side from July 15 on a two-year deal.

Last month, it was announced the management of Millwall Lionesses were ending their affiliation with Millwall Football Club and forming a new side called the London City Lionesses.

There has since been a lack of information on where the new club will be based and where they will play their games. Martinez Losa joined Millwall Lionesses last summer along with first-team coach Chris Phillips, the pair formerly working together at Arsenal Ladies.

The Lionesses finished tenth and last in the Women’s Championship last season, after Martinez Losa and Phillips brought through a host of young players in a revamp of the squad.

Millwall Community Trust is to run Millwall Lionesses, though there has been no official clarification on their future.

In a statement in May, Millwall Football Club said it was “disappointed that the Lionesses’ current hierarchy have decided to become independent. Millwall have tried several times, over the course of the season, to arrive at a different outcome.

“The club’s aim, as always, is to ensure that there is a pathway for girls and women to play football at as high a level as possible and this will continue to be the case with a new-look Millwall Lionesses.

“The club wishes London City Lionesses the best of luck in the future with their new venture.”

The breakaway is set to officially happen on July 1.
